Re: Breaking News!

Guess he won't be kicking ass anytime soon. Strange name for a dog though . . . I named my dog "Shark".  Didn't think there was anything wrong with that.

Re: We all love puns

We CAN NOT let this year end... .... then we’d be admitting that 2021! Frankly, I'd be willing to admit the year ends 11/30 and skip all of December — yes, even Christmas! — if it means we get rid of Trump that much faster. https://www.picgifs.com/emoticons/smileys-and-emoticons/cycling/smileys-cyc...

Re: Methods for Newbies, Revised

Thus concludes the song of Hiawatha. I suppose I should thank Meth-head for letting me add to the accumulated and ever-increasing wealth of fine literature on this board, a trend for which he seems to have single-handedly responsible.

The Song of Hiawatha 1855 XXI: The White Man's Foot In his lodge beside a river, Close beside a frozen river, Sat an old man, sad and lonely. White his hair was as a snow-drift; Dull and low his fire was burning, And the old man shook and trembled, Folded in his Waubewyon, In his tattered white-skin...
